Food Lion Review
Food Lion is a large grocery store chain that competes directly with other companies like Kroger and Winn-Dixie. Founded in 1957, it originally went by the name of Food Town. Three men started the grocery store chain in a small town in North Carolina. Though the chain later expanded to include a number of stores, the original founders sold the company to a major corporation in 1975. After expanding into other states, the new owners changed its name to Food Lion to avoid competition with other stores that already used the Food Town name. Those new owners also adopted a logo that features a white lion standing against a dark blue background, which many stores still use today. Other stores use a red logo, and the Food Lion website uses a logo that features a black lion standing above the store's name in blue.
Food Lion expanded across the southern United States in the early 1980s before moving further west and up the East Coast. The chain later added stores in the Midwest. Food Lion now operates more than 1,000 stores in 10 American states including Pennsylvania, North Carolina, West Virginia, Delaware, and Kentucky.
